Messing around various RAW converters trying to emulate mr.Wrotniaks settings for max details for his incamera jpg processing on his Olys, i believe i found a compromise for the FZ18, i'm posting the "Taste" file for Silkypix for everyone to experiment and tweak, feel free to comment, thanks for reading.

The .zip file is a custom preset file for Silkypix RAW converter that adjusts sharpness and noise reduction as to bring a more detailed although slightly noisy image. It wont work on all subjects or images but its good enough for bringing out details such as the fur in the cat imagesm,the details in the stone/concrete wall and so on.

My findings with this camera is that overall is an excellent picture taking tool, but the jpgs it produces specially for closeup/portrairts where details count are dissapointing even at internal camera noise reduction settings to -2,many details lost to heavy denoising...for general picture taking is fine, but as i mentioned close up portraits of people or complex/fine details, RAW capture is a must in this camera for me. Fortunately the option is there and along with Silkypix which i consider a superior RAW converter tool due to its ability to precisely adjust sharpness-noise reduction and its fantastic rendition of color, saves the day for those precious snaps.
